Ford Ends Fiesta Production in Europe
Nov. 1, 2022—Ford has decided to end European production of the Fiesta vehicle model a year earlier than planned, according to Yahoo!
In the United States, production of the Fiesta ended in 2018. The Fiesta was once the best-selling car in Europe. Recently, sales for the vehicle have gone down, leading the automaker to decide to end production in Europe.
Ford is working on seven EV options for Europe, and plans to convert a plant in Cologne, Germany, in 2023 for production of 200,000 EVs a year. In 2024, batteries will be produced there.
Ford anticipates that about half of its sales as an automaker will be electric by 2030.
